Carols in Docklands

03 Feb 2013

The sound of Christmas carols invaded Docklands in December during the Carols at Docklands event at NewQuay.

It was the third year that the Planetshakers had held its carols event at the Piazza and according to organisers the event continues to grow each year.

“It’s now the largest free carols event in Victoria according to our research,” Planetshakers spokesperson Darryn Keneally said.

Around 20,000 people turned out for the event on December 23, which featured a children’s carnival, carols and fireworks launched from barges in the water.

“The fireworks lit up the whole harbour,” Mr Keneally said.

Planetshakers hopes to run Carols at Docklands again this year, however it may have to relocate due to MAB’s plans to redevelop the Piazza.

Harbour Esplanade has been suggested as an alternative space for the event but this would require road closures.

Mr Keneally said Planetshakers would be contacting council about using Harbour Esplanade for the event.
